The people upstairs, Part II

Remember my rant about the people living upstairs?

Apparently, the young woman who wakes up early and talks to the phone is a spammer. She woke me up early one morning and I was able to make out most of what she was saying on the phone. She would call people and talk unstoppably.

Phone spammers in US are usually paid minimum wage. I am not sure how she and her mother are able to pay the $1700 monthly rent (if that’s all they do).

You mean she’s a telemarketer ? I thought they usually have to go to work at a call center.


This is the admin speaking...

No, some can do it from home.

Telemarketer or prostitute – I think I would have to go with choice #2 if I wanted to keep some sense of dignity.

Eugenia is a voyeur. I worked at a call center. Forgive me.

Well, I suppose the key phrase in that post is “she would call people…”

If you’re working in something like a reservation center or a customer service shop, you don’t intiate calls.
